PRINCESS OF EVERYDAY LIFE

Experimental Documentary, 9 min, HD, 2015
Screenplay, Director, Cinematography, Montage: Dan Dansen


We are creatures produced by society – even in the spheres we think as the most private: love, intimacy and cooking.

By combining the sensual activity of cooking and a love poem the experimental documentary “Princess of everyday life” takes a closer look to this very fact. Director Dan Dansen gives an intimate insight into his relationship to his partner Fabian through a calm narrative of long camera shots. Throughout the film intimacy and privacy of both the cooking and the love poem become visible in their societal dimension: what seemed to be private appears to be public. What seemed clear and obvious suddenly becomes fragile, ambiguous and queer: A coming-out-story through another perspective.



AWARD FOR THE PRINCESS


I am very happy to announce that "Princess of everyday life" won the Special Mention for short documentaries at the 11th XPOSED International Queer Film Festival! Special thanks to the jury, your support means a lot to me!

Jury Statement:
A documentation of a man at work turns into a touching testament about non-normative relationships in Dan Dansen's "Princess of everyday life". Told through a love letter by the unseen director to his protagonist, this simple film redefines the possibilities of being together beyond a heteronormative social order.

Special thanks also to all of you who made the XPOSED International Queer Film Festival happen!
